Date:12/19/2007

Ignagni: "This initiative is a fundamental repositioning."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One year ago America's Health Insurance Plans' (AHIP) Board of Directors advanced a proposal to provide universal coverage.

"We are committed to working with legislators and other stakeholders to identify policy solutions to the health care challenges facing our nation," said George Halvorson, Chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente and Chairman of AHIP's Board of Directors.

Continuing on its mission to improve the accessibility, affordability, and quality of health care in America, in June the AHIP Board established an Individual Market Task Force to examine this issue and put forth both policy and operational recommendations.
